After our last test, I saw that my students could not decide whether to add or subtract when given a word problem with a variable and a fraction. This worksheet shows them that they can substitute "easy" numbers into the problem to help them decide what operation to do.
The first column of problems are supposed to be very simple for the students to solve. The second column contains the same scenario but with fractions, and the third column contains the same scenario but with a fraction and a variable.
